QR Group Celebrates Winter Solstice Festival

Happy Winter Solstice Festival!

Happy Winter Solstice Festival!

With year 2018 is just around the corner, there are still plenty of festivities to be celebrated before we bid adieu to 2017 and usher in the New Year. While many will be thinking of Christmas, another event equally as important is Dongzhi Festival or Winter Solstice Festival. The Winter Solstice Festival traditionally represents a time for many Chinese families to get together.

Making and eating of “tangyuan” or balls of glutinous rice is a popular activity during these family get-togethers as it symbolises reunion and unity. Best served in a bowl of hot sweet soup, this festive food often keeps people warm during the harsh winters. Today, QR Group joined in the festivities and participated in making their own “tangyuan”. Many of us spend a significant amount of our time at work, so colleagues and workmates can often become our second family. It is just as important to get together and foster close relationships with each other.

The Winter Solstice Festival is also a reminder that celebrators are now a year older and should behave better in the coming year. This is a great moment to reflect on the past year, learn and grow from past mistakes and experiences as well as to prepare for the year ahead.


We at Silverlake Axis hope you had a memorable 2017 and we wish you all the best in 2018!
